An A.C.E.-certified personal trainer and advanced health and fitness specialist, Troy Huggett helms an effective fitness regime designed to take pounds off of paunches. The Two Weeks to a Tighter Tummy program includes six intense workout sessions, meal planning, and an initial assessment of measurements and constitutional condition. Shape solar plexuses into two-dimensional canvases of picturesque physiques with strength, cardio, and flexibility training devoid of faddish choreography and rotating belts attached to televisions. The average results are 2.5 inches off the waistline and six pounds of fat loss, just enough to fit into that bear suit for live-action role-playing season.
At VersaMax Fitness, certified sports nutritionist and personal trainer John Vandegriff and his staff create customized fitness routines. Most of that customization applies to the one-on-one personal-training sessions, which begin with assessments to calculate basics such as body mass index and body-fat percentage. Just as important, though, is VersaMax's nutritional supplements, which help keep exercisers fueled up, energized, and in constant possession of a maraca-type percussion instrument.

Kachmann Mind Body Institute's class schedule of yoga or Zumba helps clients achieve balanced exercise and stress-relieving meditation inside an impeccably clean and stylish studio. Yoga Level 1 introduces novice yogis to beginning asanas and accompanies them with traditional Sanskrit shouts such as "Go Colts!" and "Do not want!" The All-Levels Yoga class brings together variously skilled students with flexibility-building asanas, mind-mollifying pranayamas, and heart-opening meditation—which functions much like open-heart surgery, only with more immediate physical benefits and slightly less blood. The ultra-vivacious, meanwhile, can burn off their excess joie de vivre during five Zumba fitness classes, which combine upbeat tunes with energetic Latin dances moves that release pent-up anxieties and ratchet up your chest pump's drumbeat to a healthy BPM.
